This Sunday I want to show you a few of my favorite free sans serif fonts. Some of the fonts are free for personal use only, while others are open source fonts. Please read the license before using them.
And since we are talking about fonts, let’s get a little bit technical and talk about the difference between a font and a typeface. For most people the terms can be used interchangeably, but there is a difference between them. The typeface represents the design, the overall look of the characters. Font refers to a specific variant of the typeface at a specific size and weight.
The difference between serif and sans serif typefaces? The serifs are the small lines that you see at the edges of letters and numbers. The sans serif fonts don’t have these lines. It’s usually recommended to use serif fonts for print and sans serif fonts on the web.
